Linda Marsanico, a spiritual coach, was educated in the United States and England. Her doctorate in social psychology is from Loughborough University, England. At Postgraduate Center, NYC, she clinically focused on psychodynamic work with children, adolescents and families.


Linda’s philosophy is referred to as facilitation and collaboration which rests on an equal relationship: the client as the ‘expert’ on self, and the facilitator as the ‘expert’ on theories for psychological change.


With the notion of play taken from the work of D.W. Winnicott, the English pediatrician and psychoanalyst, Linda utilizes the beauty and function of playing: involving fantasy, creativity and energy flow. The task is to align the conscious and unconscious, with the specific goal of moving toward desired changes, nurturing the healing process.


For eight years Linda worked with a spiritual group on Long Island, New York where she learned chanting and meditation techniques. Linda studied Integrated Energy Therapy,® and Vortex®. She is a Reiki Master.


Her paper “Change, Transformation: in other words, Compassion leads to Changes in DNA”, citing the work of Gregg Braden, and David Hawkins, was presented at SEPI, The Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration, on May 6, 2006 in Los Angeles.


Since 2008 workshops have been conducted on the blending of our mind-body-spirit at the Sedona Creative Art Center in Arizona, the META Center, NYC as well as in her Brooklyn and Manhattan offices.

Here is a review from Carol Vinson, Ph.D., private practice, Brooklyn, NY:
  "A very creative piece of writing.  Dr. Marsanico's knowledge and imagination range over a wide variety of topics, including psychology, religion and popular culture, topics to which she brings her special enthusiasm and persuasive point of view."
Another review is from Cynthia Callsen, LCSW, DCSW:
"What a wonderful journey. I delved into your book last night and found it so healing, so relaxing, always turning toward love and compassion and connection with the Universe and all Being."
A third review is from Ilyana Kadushin (Performer, Producer and Activist)
Linda Marsanico's "Compassion In My Own Words" is a beautiful blend of personal journal, spiritual guide and homage to the inherent poetry of living. It delightfully and honestly goes through the seasons, with each affecting the spirit of Linda's outlook and writing  I was reminded that compassion starts with self and only then can ripple out to people and to life's twists and turns. That the joy, playfulness and "open to world's possibilities" that children have so effortlessly, is there for us to discover and own, if we see ourselves as co-creators of our life path.  We have for our analogy, Linda's honesty about writing this very book, that like life, it requires an equanimity, from effort to surrender.
